This week European songwriting geniuses Ylvis a video for their newest single, "The Fox." Originally a major hit in Norway, the masterpiece of a track observes the complexities and mysteries of nature. Undoubtedly the greatest piece of songwriting since "Bohemian Rhapsody," "The Fox" surpasses anything the likes of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, or Bob Marley ever came up with. Make sure to listen below BEFORE continuing, in order to truly experience this wonderful piece of art.
The song and video speak for themselves, so here's all you really need to know: this Norwegian duo, who are also brothers, posted the video to YouTube. They are described as a comedy group, which takes some of the fun out it for those who were hoping this were a legitimate song. As of writing this post, the video has begun to go viral, garnering 500,000 views in the past 5 hours alone and reaching the one million view milestone along the way. The sad part is the "instrumentals" in the song don't really vary much from something David Guetta et. al. might put out. Some have gone so far as to deem this the new "Friday," the infamous 2011 viral hit from pop tween Rebecca Black. While it's not a seriously written song (thankfully, as it would probably earn a 0/10 from every critic who ever lived), the fact that you might believe it was real had you not been told otherwise is telling.
